I entered the wrong code too many times on my itouch


You can put the iPod into recovery mode, and then restore the iPod.

To do this:
1) Turn the iPod off.
2) Hold down the Home button on the iPod while connecting it to the computer it was last synced with.
3) Release the Home button when the iTunes image appears on the iPod's screen.
4) Wait for iTunes to recognize the iPod and then follow the onscreen instructions to restore the iPod.

I forgot my itouch password, and it wont unlock


Hi,

The only option is Restore or Reset.

Hold down the power and home keys down for about 10 seconds each while plugged into itunes. When the screen goes black, release the power button but keep holding the home key until itunes says. We have detected an itouch in recovery mode.

From there you can restore as normal via iTunes.

Thanks.

My itouch says connect to itunes but it wont let me


You will want to reset the ipod and reconnect it to your computer. Below I have posted step by steps on three trouble shooting options. If after a reset it still will not connect to the computer, proceed to step two. Putting the iPod into recovery mode. Then if in recovery mode you can get it to connect to the computer, restore it to factory settings. Restoring it is listed as step three. I left the restore article normal in case you can get it to connect with just a simple reset.

1st reset

Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

2nd RECOVERY MODE
Connect your USB cable to the computer without the iPod connected at the other end.

Power off the device (Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the slider. Wait for the the iPhone or iPod touch to turn off.

Press and hold the Home button while reconnecting the USB cable to iPhone. When you reconnect the USB to iPhone, the device should then power on.
Continue holding the Home button while iPod starts up. While starting up, you will see the Apple logo. When you see "Connect to iTunes" on the screen, you can release the Home button and iTunes will display the recovery mode message: iTunes has detected an iPod in recovery mode. You must restore this iPod before it can be used with iTunes.

If you don't see the "Connect to iTunes" screen, then disconnect the USB cable from iPod and repeat steps 3-6.
Because you must restore the iPod touch, iTunes will not recover data from the device, but if it was previously synced on the same computer and the same user account, it should restore a backup (if available)


RESTORE Use the following steps to restore your iPod touch:
Make sure you have the latest version of iTunes installed and running before attempting to update. Connect your iPod touch to your computer. Select your iPod touch when it appears in iTunes under Devices. Select the Summary tab. Select the Restore option. When prompted to back up your iPod touch's settings before restoring, select the Back Up option. If have just backed up the device, it is not necessary to create another.
Select the Restore option when iTunes prompts you
Once the restore process has completed the iPod touch restarts and displays the Apple logo while starting up

If none of this works and your iPod is still under a year old I would call apple. Make sure that you inform them of the trouble shooting you have already done though. They can tend to assume people don't do trouble shooting. GOOD LUCK

I cant get into my itouch


If you don't have the original computer the iPhone synced with, the only solution is to force your iPod Touch into recovery mode and then restore it. You will lost all the data on the iPod Touch, but after this method is done, everything will work. You can find the steps to solving this problem here:

Use the Ziphone ipod touch and iphone jailbreak GUI to put the ipod in recovery mode. Then restore it using iTunes.

Recovery mode should do the job. doesnt matter what state ur ipod is in.

Itouch unlock password


if you do not know your passcode then make sure it is plugged in 2 the cp and make sure the itouch is on the screen where it says enter passcode. then you hold the power and home button at the same time until the itouch completely turns off and then you keep on holding both buttons until the apple logo again. and after that appears, you let go of the power button but you keep holding the home button until the itouch says its connected to itunes. and then you are allowed to access it on itunes. then you need to restore it and it will restore ur hole ipod and there will not be a passcode anymore
